CALIFORNIA – The Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program needs more volunteers to advocate for children in foster care.

Regional Outreach Coordinator for NVCSS CASA, Carolyn Murray, says Court Appointed Special Advocates trains and mobilizes community volunteers to advocate and make a difference for abused and neglected children in foster care.

They stand up for them, speak up for them, and champion without compromise for what's in their best interest.

On average, CASA volunteers spend 10 to 20 hours per month with a one-year commitment or until the child is placed in a permanent home.

The program is administered through Northern Valley Catholic Social Service. The next training starts on Feb. 1 at 5:30 p.m.

The deadline to apply is Jan. 25. For more information, join an informational session at noon or 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 20 on Google Meets. Meeting links, application requests, and more info available at nvcss.org/casa and 1-844-25-4CASA.
